Dorothy Swain Lewis Fine Arts Festival

Orme’s Fine Arts Festival wrapped up on Saturday, February 21 with Grandparents Day, when students displayed their final art creations, and the Hip Hop Dance and West African Drumming workshops gave inspiring performances. Led by many returning professional artists, students spent an intensified week in various workshops, learning new skills, exploring their own creativity, and gaining a new appreciation for the Arts. Many thanks to all of our visiting artists, and a special thank you to Festival Coordinator Dylan Cook for putting together another very successful and artistic week.

The 2015 Festival, themed Around the World, kicked off on Sunday, February 15 with a special Gallery Opening & Reception. CLICK HERE to read this year’s Festival flyer.
